Accelerated funding has been allocated through the following Road Stimulus Packages to increase investment in roads and transport infrastructure as part of The Queensland Economic Recovery Strategy.
Lockyer Creek Bridge strengthening and rehabilitation
Strengthening and rehabilitation works are underway to the Lockyer Creek Bridge on Gatton-Helidon Road.
The Lockyer Creek Bridge is an important piece of infrastructure for local freight and agricultural movements in the region. This project will deliver improved freight efficiency and reduce disruption from ongoing maintenance of the bridge.
Road users will experience minor disruptions during construction with a reduced speed limit in place and some staged partial lane closures implemented when necessary. Traffic control signs will be erected to direct traffic through the works safely and with minimal delays.
